A Roof is More Than a Lid for Your Home. It Can be an Energy Producer Too.
If you live in the Sacramento area and are looking for a well-established roofer who has experience installing solar panels as well, look no further than Yancey Home Improvements.
Let’s talk about our roofing experience and qualifications first:

As a Sacramento roofing and solar panel installation contractor, we’ll assess the condition of your current roof, and if repairs will do the job, we’ll handle the task. If, however, you want a roof replacement, we have the industry experience and up-to-date technical know-how to not only install your new roof, we can also recommend, design, and install a rooftop solar system.
First things first. Choose the roofing materials you want.
If you’re replacing your roof, now is the time to consider a possible change to the appearance of your home. Composition and asphalt shingles are the most commonly used and traditionally considered cost-effective, but there are other options that can improve the curb appeal and well as the value of your home. You might want to consider:
- Wood shake roofing shingles
- Corrugated steel roofing panels
- Clay tile roofing materials
- IP standing seam insulated panels
We can explain the advantages and disadvantages for of each, and we’ll also explain why your location may determine the best material for your roof. We look at the whole picture.
What’s this about a rooftop solar system?
Consider that Sacramento’s climate is characterized by hot, dry summers, and with the exception of El Nino years, is one of the sunniest locations in the nation during the summer. We can’t think of a better place to take advantage of solar energy.
A new roof is a wise investment, but a new roof with solar panels will increase your property value while decreasing your energy consumption. It’s a win-win for you as a homeowner and an attractive selling point should you put your home on the market.
It is a natural extension of our talent and commitment as roofing specialists to offer solar panel installation and to answer any questions our customers may have.
First, we evaluate your home’s orientation
We’ll carefully evaluate and identify potential areas of concern prior to installation. There are various factors that determine the effectiveness of solar panels, including:
How solar panels work
- There should be no shade on the panels, especially from 9 a.m. To 3 p.m. – the prime sunlight hours.
- The prime orientation for optimum potential is a south-facing installation, but that doesn’t exclude others.
- Trees that shade during the day will cause a decrease to power production.
Solar panels contain photovoltaic cells that transform incoming sunlight from heat to electricity. Then, the inverter, which we’ll connect directly to a dedicated circuit breaker in your home’s electrical panel, will turn the DC electricity from the solar panels into 120-volt AC for your home’s consumption.
